If you plan on flying into Arizona for camp, you must fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. If you are flying into Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and need to be picked up and transported to camp, we will need your itinerary and flight information by Monday, June 12th at the latest so we are able to make the necessary arrangements. Please select “Need Airport Pickup” during registration and e-mail your itineraries and info to skyathletics@me.com as soon as possible. If you have yet to make flight arrangements, it is best to have arrival into Phoenix between 9:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m on June 25th, and between 3:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on June 29th. We will have staff members picking up and dropping off at the airport on arrival and departure days. The fee is $100 and will cover picking up one camper from Sky Harbor, transporting them to camp, and then transporting them back to Sky Harbor after camp concludes. If you have questions about airport logistics or when to schedule your flights, please contact Todd Lehman at saculxam@mac.com.
